The Talking Breathalyzer

I have found a new project.  

The Talking Breathalyzer


This is a good little open source project I found on instructables.com.  Although it can not give a B.A.C. (Blood Alcohol Content) it is still a fun little party gadget to amuse all your friends.

Here is a description of the project from the build page. 

" A customizable Breathalyzer that talks and tells you how much you’ve had to drink. It’s also open source and can easily be modified with your own text on the LCD screen and audio MP3 files.

When tethered to a PC with a USB cable, it has additional features including character animations, Breathalyzer Tweets, text to speech, weather and stock read-outs, and a Photobooth feature."

   Here is the parts list for the project and
